"I Goat" in Spitalfields
Spitalfields has been the site of a market in London since the 13th century and through the centuries has evolved into a now permanent old market hall within a 1990's development called "Bishops Square". A sculpture competition for a major installation was held last year and the winner was "I Goat" by Scottish artist Kenny Hunter. The 3.5m high sculpture was unveiled in January '11 and is said to reference the waves of migration that have influenced this area. It seems a suitable image for a market area!
